Too Cute Tuesday: Vegetable-Stamped Stationary

Too Cute Tuesday: Vegetable-Stamped Stationary

Nicole gets that crazed look in her eye when she gets that portabella mushroom to finally do what she wants.

My Pepere* was nice enough last fall to give me a 25 pound bag of fresh Maine potatoes. And boy, did they make some spectacular oven fries those cold winter nights!

As a single woman living by herself living a lower-carb life, it has taken me almost this entire time to get through the whole bag. I have two potatoes left but they are beginning to sprout. And if it is one thing I know, when life hits you with sprouting potatos, you make potato stamps.

I subscribe to over 200 blogs and websites but you certainly wouldn't know it from my blog recently. I've basically had time to read and bookmark and that's about it. And then I get frustrated that my stuff isn't getting linked!

Yeah, I get it; it's time to pop out of my oh-my-life-is-a-whirlwind-of-change bubble and do a little aknowledgement of cool things going on elsewhere online, because there are certainly plenty.

Why I Live In Maine

Why I Live In Maine

So Kristy at Master Your Card commented on my business post about my bed and desk being really close together. Truth is, I couldn't put them any further away unless I'd be working on my porch. Girl plus dog in 220 square feet is not much, but in Bar Harbor, this is what affordable looks like.

It is reasons like this tiny apartment that I sometimes ask myself why I live here.

You Tell Me: Legitimate Online Fundraising

You Tell Me: Legitimate Online Fundraising

So I got an email today from my friend Susan asking if I knew anything about online fundraising for people in need. Here's the scenario:

My cousin recently gave birth to her first child 11 months early which is scary, but what's even scarier is that there are lots of health complications, her job isn't great, if she doesn't go back to work in 2 weeks (they've been with the kid in intensive care for a few weeks now) she loses her health insurance, her husband's job got "downsized" and they're almost finished building their house that her husband designed and built with his parent's help. They've been married 1 year. So...their bills are stacking up, they may lose their house soon, and all of us in the family are feeling mighty helpless about the whole thing. How to help? Like many situations, money would solve a lot.
